Israel Tourism

Every cobblestone and courtyard, tree and hill, breeze and breath of Israel has been witness to tumultuous moments in history. It was here that the Prophet Mohammed stopped on his 'Night Journey' and ascended to Heaven. It is also the land where Jesus was born, lived, preached, died and rose to Heaven. Israel has been as the "Promised Land" of the Jews since Biblical times.

Israel is thus virtually the "Holy Land" of Jewish, Muslim and Christian pilgrims. These religious diversities have made the country politically very sensitive. Israel is a land of incredible topographical contrasts with mountains, sub-tropical valleys, fertile farms and deserts. Climate, culture, history and religion are diverse making Israel a heaven on earth, the proverbial Garden of Eden for tourists of discriminating, intellectual and adventurous tastes.

Israel is the only country in the world that entered the 21st century with a net gain in its number of trees- it seems the country is adopting more and more greenery!

Can you imagine puppets speaking different languages?? Well that makes sense in Israel…Sesame Street in Israel has puppets that speak Hebrew, Arabic and Russian.

Did you know…Albert Einstein was offered the presidency of Israel in the year 1952? However, he declined the invitation.
